Four Vacancies, Four Opportunites. What Should Go Here?
With ample parking in the back, these places should be prime real estate
Four store fronts remain vacant on Lower Main Street directly across from the Aberdeen-Matawan Train Station.
The Cleaners closed; CareMinders moved two blocks up the street; Matawan Barbeque closed; and no sign is left to depict what the fourth shop used to be.
Lack of parking is a common complaint for Main Street business owners, but behind these shops there is a parking lot with over twenty spaces.
Recently, Patch users tackled the issue of who should occupy the old Dollar Express location on Main Street. The store recently became The Discount Depot, however several people suggested a Panera Bread, a tax center and a hobby store.
What do you think? What would do well across the street from the train station and in close proximity to both Route 34 and Route 35?
